  • Why Dell’s Security Camera IoT Offering Is Doing So Well: It Focuses on Results Sep 7 I’ve spent much of my life in and around security technology. My family at one time owned the largest electronic security company on the West coast, I worked as both a security guard and an Orange County Sheriff, as an operations manager I managed security, and at IBM, for a time, I owned security for my group and did security audits as an Internal Auditor. As an analyst, I’ve covered security for much of my independent career and, given the times, I’ve been a bit surprised that there isn’t more of a focus on doing security right. When I saw an announcement this week on Dell doing an IoT solution for surveillance, I requested an update and discovered this was one of the most successful and fastest growing groups in Dell. I got to this conclusion when I found this unit was outgrowing the security industry, which is currently growing at between 15 percent and 25 percent. Let’s talk about why Dell Technologies is so successful with its security effort. It comes down to the EMC storage component and Dell’s ability to be a general contractor and provide one throat to choke.
  • Intel Actions on Security/Performance Problems Should Drive Recall and Government Oversight Sep 4 This is starting to get annoying. It seems like every week I’m seeing yet another Intel screw up, and these things are all avoidable. It is as if Intel lives in its own reality bubble and doesn’t seem to realize that there are a ton of folks watching it that publish (it literally seems to be rotting from the inside). This latest problem is, in my opinion, serious. Apparently, Intel has released a patch for the Foreshadow exploit that uniquely impacts Intel’s processors. This patch is having a nasty effect on performance and likely has a lot of folks thinking that Intel should do a recall on processors that have this defect. I personally think we passed the recall bar some time ago.

  • Toyota Moves To NVIDIA AGX TG Daily | Sep 15 BlackBerry continues to execute on their pivot to become a software, services, and device security firm. This doesn’t mean they don’t still have interesting smartphones, their licensed Key2 phone is arguably one of the most impressive secure phones currently in market. But the company’s focus is on securing the ecosystem and no firm is likely better positioned to get this done than BlackBerry. This week the firm had several interesting announcements but, perhaps, the most interesting was their new intelligent security system named Spark.

AMD’s latest processor and its impact on Intel

“It’s phenomenal for things like video and picture editing.… This processor kind of caught (Intel) flat footed … they cut back on marketing, they cut back on development and the end result is that AMD has moved around them at least at the top end.”

Salesforce having co-CEOs

"One of the huge problems we have in tech right now is succession. This co-CEO structure is designed to address this problem, but it still relies heavily on the CEO to actually mentor his partner, otherwise they still don’t pick up the (executive) skills."
